Titolo: A Feature Tracking velocimetry technique applied to inclined negatively buoyant jets
Data di pubblicazione: 2014
Abstract: We have applied a Feature Tracking Velocimetry (FTV) technique to measure displacements of particles on inclined negatively buoyant jets (INBJs), issuing from a circular sharp-edged orifice, in order to investigate, among the others, the symmetry properties of the velocity field on this phenomenon. Feature Tracking Velocimetry is less sensitive to the appearance and disappearance of particles and to high velocity gradients than classical Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The basic idea of Feature Tracking Velocimetry is to compare windows only where the motion detection may be successful, that is where there are high luminosity gradients. The Feature Tracking Velocimetry algorithm presented here is suitable in presence of different seeding densities, where other techniques produce significant errors, due to the non-homogeneous seeding at the boundary of a flow. The Feature Tracking Velocimetry algorithm has been tested on laboratory experiments regarding simple jets (SJs) and inclined negatively buoyant jets released from a sharp-edged orifice. We present here velocity statistics, from the first to the fourth order, to study, among the others, the differences between simple jets and inclined negatively buoyant jets, and to investigate how the increase in buoyancy affects the inclined negatively buoyant jet behavior. We remark that, to the best of authors’ knowledge, this is the first attempt to investigate velocity statistics of an order higher than the second on Inclined Negatively Buoyant Jets. Among the others quantities, the mean streamwise velocity decay and the integral Turbulent Kinetic Energy have been measured and analyzed, both along the jet axis and in the upper and lower region of the simple jets and inclined negatively buoyant jets, as well as the streamwise and spanwise velocity skewness and kurtosis evolution along the axis. Results show the role of buoyancy in modifying the inclined negatively buoyant jet features; moreover, it is highlighted that the asymmetry of inclined negatively buoyant jets cannot be considered only a far field feature of this phenomenon, as it arises very close to the release point.
